September 2016

The values and principles that War onWant upholds have never been more important. In this edition of Up Front, read about our urgent new campaigns for migrant workers’ rights and for a radical trade agenda that puts people and planet first. Also in this edition we are proud to showcase our partnerships with social movements around the world. Read about how our partner SACOM is exposing workers’ rights abuses in China and how MONLAR in Sri Lanka is helping small farmers fight the corporate capture of the food system. Read too about Britain’s new scramble for Africa’s resources.
